Reviews and Ratings

Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Big and bold, full bodied and luscious. Boasting vanilla bean, caramel, ripe fleshy Bartlett pear. Paired well with bacon wrapped scallops. Tasted the 2015 vintage in Nov 2017. 90 points. #BespokeTastings
Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Intense baked apple, vanilla bean, smoked cedar and baking spice notes dominate the aromas and flavours. The palate is a touch thin, I was expecting more roundness and a longer finish. Enjoy this medium-bodied Chard with New Enlgand crab cakes. Tasted Nov 2017 by @sommsosa | bespoketastings.ca

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
